dc.description.abstractAfter serving five years in prison for conspiring to overthrow the government of Eugenia Charles, Patrick John, former Prime Minister of Dominica, states that his prison record should not prevent him from resuming his political career. Secondly, the UN Secretary Council is holding consultation on Haiti following the receipt of a letter from the Haitian president calling on the UN to provide logistical assistance for the upcoming elections in Haiti. Following the Financial News, the ACP ambassadors are meeting in Brussels to discuss the post of Director for the Centre for the Development of Industry. Two weeks ago the former Secretary General of the ACP, Edwin Carrington, received the backing of a Special ACP Ministerial group in his bid to secure the Brussels-based job. However, several African nations in the ACP do not agree with this decision and the EEC is also insisting that a European candidate should fill the position.en_US
